I bought my X-E1 s/h then sold it for about with I paid for it and bought and X-E2 with a XF 35mm and 18mm for a great price, sold the 35mm as I already had one. So for very little money I have a camera and lens. Thought I'd sell the 18mm but I like it to much.

Very nice. I have no talent for shooting people, so I'm always jealous when I see an image like this.

Thanks you. It is much easier to carry XT1/56mm than my 5dmk3/85L. Just wanted to see how well fuji works.

Damn, I should have bought the XT-1 when it was priced at $1101 on Amazon a month ago. Regretting not being able to do an impulse purchase at $1299. Anyone know if there's any TTL/HSS options for off-camera flash yet? I'm looking for a studio/travel replacement for my 5D3 and 85mm f/1.2L II / 70-200 f/2.8 II. Wondering how viable the XT-1 and Fujinon lenses are. How is the AF of equivalent combo's and how much better / worse are the controls? Haven't had the chance to try one in person yet.

Simple photoflex medium softbox. Usually I shoot with SP Systems octa which a cheaper version of Elinchrom deep octa but some screws came out loose and I need to fix it. Wish I had my boom to put the softbox closer to the face but being single person shooter, it gets harder to manage.

I like the controls on XT-1 except mine is older version so dial buttons are old mushy type. Aperture control on lenses is awesome. Fuji lenses are canon L quality and very sharp wide open. The aperture control ring could be little tighter on some of the lenses. I like lower weight.

AF is nice for such a small camera. I think Olympus might be the only one better but that is 4/3. I did some shots with 56mm f1.2 @f1.2/f1.4 to track my 4yr and 7 yr old on scooter and I could take 7-8 shots in focus out of 10. Now overall camera is not going to be as responsive as 5dmk3. On canon, every control is for practical reason and working quick, look is not the main goal.

I have sold my 70-200mm f2.8 IS II and got Fuji 50-140mm f2.8. It seems as good. Still keeping 85L and 35L.

Interesting. You still keep your 85L even though there's the 56? Any reason for that?

No pressing need to sell it I guess. I had Sigma 85mm f1.4 along with 85L for long time. Same with Sigma 35mm f1.4 art and 35L. or for that matter 100-400L, 400mm f5.6.

Before this last shoot, I mostly used 56mm for ambient light shoot only. A few shoots when I did have 5dmk3/85L along with XT1/56mm to do side by side shots, I ended up using 5dmk3 more. So this time I just brought the Fuji kit.

There are still something with XT1 that I need to get used to. One is base ISO is 200 for RAW. That hurts as right now I don't have ND for 56mm. I was little worried that XT1 will deliver or not, but it seems that is over now. I will be using XT1 more for the upcoming shoots and then decide what to do with 5dmk3. I may still keep it for those small DoF shots.

I'm in a similar situation- I've got a 5DIII, 5DSR and the Fuji X-T1.

I've built a kit for the Fuji that matches my Canon glass pretty well (24-70, 70-200, 50 1.2, 85 1.2, etc). It's great to be able to go with light weight Fuji, but I still fall back to the Canon for my 'Serious' stuff.

I wish the Fuji had a macro like the MP-E65 though.

If you get an EF -XF adaptor your fuji will have a lens just like an mp-e65 ok well more like a mp-e98

Traded my CZJ 35 2.4 for a Fuji XF 35 1.4 for a straight trade - very happy with the 35. Here are a couple of quick and dirty first shots (of my kids). Bounced Godox 850. (SOOC via Wifi transfer)

Ambient light is nice but I like the pop you get from off camera flash.

Don't forget that Fuji makes extension tubes that work with all of their lenses including the macro! I just got the 11mm and I will be trying it out soon.
